When in Manila, you would find a lot of restaurants serving Mexican food. Some local favorites include tacos, nachos, and of course, for the love of rice, burritos. While there are some found in fast food joints, it surely is different when the Mexican dishes you will feast on have been prepared by no less than Chef Robby Goco.

Enter Achiote – one of the restaurants owned by Chef Robby of Cyma fame. Unlike its Greek counterpart, Achiote offers delectable Mexican dishes that are sure to fill your appetite and satisfy your taste buds. I’ve never been to Mexico but I’m sure that the specialties they have served us are worthy of visiting. Not to mention that their staff members are very friendly and service wasn’t horrible.

As if it were Cinco de Mayo, we feasted on some of Chef Robby’s creations:
